Lagrein

This red grape variety comes from Trentino-South Tyrol(Italy). The name probably derives from the Valle Lagarina in Trentino. Synonyms are Blauer Lagrein, Burgundi Lagrein, Lagarino, Lagrain, Lagrino, Lagroin and Landschwarze. A "Red Lagrein" (wine) is mentioned by the Tyrolean peasant leader Michael Gaismair (1490-1532) around 1525. However, the earliest mention of a Lagrein variety in a document from Gries near Bolzano from 1318 refers to a white wine. Until the 18th century, "Lagreiner" usually meant a white wine. Its identity is not clear, however, because it could have been Savagnin Blanc (Traminer) or Lagarino Bianco.
